Whole Wheat Roti Chivda is a light and tasty snack, which can be made with fresh or leftover rotis.

The rotis are shredded and sautéed with a tempering of cumin seeds and other tasty ingredients like onions, green chillies and garlic.

A dash of lemon juice and a garnish of finely chopped coriander leaves imparts a fresh flavour to the chivda making it a delight to munch on.

Relish this immediately after preparation, with a cup of hot chaai. You can use rotis to make other tasty recipes like Chapati Masala Noodles and Dahiwali Roti .

I had so many leftover rotis from last night. I tried this recipe and cooked up a delicious hot snack to have with my chai within no time. Thanks for the lovely idea.
